Liverpool Target Chukwueze To Complete All-African Attack
Premier League giants Liverpool are making plans to push through an impressive move for Nigeria’s Samuel Chukwueze following the Villarreal winger’s breakthrough campaign last season, reports talksports.com.
The 20-year-old enjoyed an outstanding breakthrough campaign last season, where his form brought him to the attention of some of European football’s giants and also saw him make his international debut for Nigeria.
The likes of Arsenal, PSG and Real Madrid have all been mentioned as possible suitors, but according to Goal, it is Liverpool who are keeping the closest tabs on the talented youngster.
As per the report, scouts from the European champions have been regular visitors to the Estadio de la Cerámica and it’s believed Liverpool could make a move as early as January for a player already thought to be high up on Jurgen Klopp’s wish-list.
Liverpool already have Senegalese star Sadio Mane and Egyptian king Mohamed Salah on their books and the capture of Chukwueze could give them an all-out African attack.
The Nigerian is currently rated in the €40m bracket, but with his value likely to soar, Liverpool know they may have to strike sooner rather than later.
Chukwueze, who has netted once in La Liga this term, will be in action when Nigeria’s Super Eagles take on Ukraine in an international friendly in Kiev next week.
